A soldier killed at least 26 people and wounded 52 others in a shooting at a popular shopping mall in northeastern Thailand before being killed inside the building, the country's prime minister told a news conference Sunday, per Channel News Asia.

What else we know: Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha told reporters the soldier's 17-hour shooting spree began Saturday over a "debt dispute," AFP reports.

  • Defense Ministry spokesperson Lt. Gen. Kongcheep Tantrawanich said the soldier, identified as Sgt. Maj. Jakrapanth Thomma, was behind the attack in Terminal 21 mall in the northeastern city of Nakhon Ratchasim, per AP.
  • The rampage started at a military base, where he shot a superior officer and injured several others, the New York Times notes.
  • Facebook told the NYT it identified a brief live video posted by the suspected shooter. Sarah Pollack, a Facebook spokesperson, told the Times that Facebook had not found evidence that the shooting was streamed on Facebook Live.
